Dare I say it?

I had an even better night in Kara than I did last week. It’s costing me a lot in gems and enchants, but it is absolutely worth it. Once again- best guildies ever. We’ve got some people coming up who are fabulous. They’re dedicated players and they pay attention and catch on quick. Our new warrior (who has 5 level 70s and hadn’t really been in a guild before I ran Shadow Lab with him in a PUG and encouraged him to talk to our gm about joining us) got himself both Kara t4 pieces tonight. I rolled against him for the helm, but I’m glad he got it. Our new shammy healer is also pretty great, and very helpful. It was also nice to run again with one of our older members who’s been on less often for a while with RL stuff.

After being wipe-free (aside from a bad trash pull) on Thursday night, and one-shotting every boss until Shade tonight, we had terrible, terrible infernal drops during Prince- which we never have. It was worth it though. Our humble and amusing hunter got Sunfury, our new Shammy got the Jade Ring of the Everliving, and our new warrior got his t4 helm.

I also scrounged together enough badges to get the Gnarled Ironwood Pauldrons, which look wicked cool.

What I’m most excited about is my new Be Imba status. Last week, it was telling me I could handle the end of Kara, and I still had some upgrades mid-kara. Today, I’m ready for the beginning of TK and SSC, and I’ve got upgrades in Mag and Gruul’s. I’m certainly not actually ready for TK and SSC, and I’m not even certain that I’m really ready for Mag and Gruul’s, but it’s nice to know that I’ve got the gear to perform well, as long as I’ve got the talent.

Also, Blog question: How can I get thott/wowhead links to show the item specs when you roll over it? I know nothing about CSS and very little about coding and formatting in general. I dabbled in HTML years ago, but have forgotten much of what I had learned.

Another good night for me in Karazhan. I’m not sure how I feel about getting squishier, but I do like my +healing going up. We went from start through Chess tonight in about four hours, one-shotting every boss. Our opera event was Romulo & Julianne. I went in looking like this:

Adventures in Karazhan

Well, I finally got into Kara yesterday. I was supposed to go on Thursday night, but our main tank didn’t show (it was his birthday this week and he drew some serious aggro from friends and family his friends and family took him out around town).

More on my exciting adventure after the break: (more…)

Seriously. I’ve been level 70 for 10 days and I’m already Kara keyed. Of course, it’s a little bit self-serving because they need healers for our second group, but regardless they got me through CoT1 and CoT2 tonight and they took me through Shadow Labyrinth last week.

Also, in our runs tonight I won every blue I rolled on (we had no enchanter, and none of the gear was useful to anyone in the group). Which of course means, that I will never get any gear from Kara, since I’ve spent all my good rolls and luck on garbage. /crosses fingers, hoping it wont’ be true

More meaningful posts later, I promise. I’ve got a Tree’s Guide to Dalliah the Doomsayer brewing, and more class posts in the queue.
